Glass or plastic?

Glass or plastic?

In recent years, the debate about whether plastic storage containers, for food and drink, are good for our health has been a hot topic! So without all the sciencey mumbo jumbo that can just confuse the issue, I thought I’d outline a few simple reasons below for why people, like us, are pro glass:

  1. Unlike plastic, glass is not absorbent and therefore doesn’t retain colours or smells (or give them off!).

  2. There are no chemicals in glass that could potentially breakdown (due to sunlight/heat/time) and contaminate what is being stored.
  3. Double the eco goodness – which gives it a major thumbs up from us, here at Nurture with Nature!! Firstly glass reduces wastage as glass bottles and containers tend to be reused rather than thrown away after each use. And secondly – it is a much more recyclable material than plastic, so when it eventually does go in the bin, it doesn’t do as much damage to our lovely planet!
  4. It’s a money saving expert! Although they might cost you more initially, well made glass products will last forever! So see it as an upfront investment – not only for your pocket, but in your health too!
  5. Super convenient! You can move your food storage container from freezer to oven without the hassle of using different pots/pans/dishes. That’s time and effort saved for you, and with less washing up to do, glass has done its bit for Mother Nature once again!

So what are you waiting for? Go green – get glass!
